RF (radio frequency) skin tightening treatment

Radio frequency (RF) is the latest and most up-to-date skin care treatment for skin tightening. The temperature of the deeper skin tissue is raised to approximately 40 to 44 degrees through the penetration of the RF waves, which act on restructuring the aged collagen fibres.

In turn, the once loose, flaccid and dehydrated collagen becomes supple, firm and taut through the effects of heat. Immediate results are seen in the way of some lifting, however the best results are noticed approximately three months post-treatment due to the long-lasting effect on the collagen fibres. No downtime required with this treatment.

  • consultation time: 15 minutes
  • treatment time: one hour and 30 minutes
  • cost: $110 per treatment or $400 for a package of four

Soft laser skin rejuvenation

Through the use of a 908nm cool laser system from ITALY, this unique 100 per cent safe technology creates a firmer, glowing and more youthful appearance. The wavelength used creates stimulation within the dermis increasing the ATP (energy level) within the cells. This added energy results in an optimum functioning of the rejuvenation processes of the skin resulting in an uplifted, smoother complexion with a softening of fine lines. Because there is no heat associated with this treatment It is extremely comfortable feeling.

Pigmentary disorder treatment with IPL

Sunspots, age spots, chloasma, lentigines – watch them vanish!

Through the use of state-of-the-art technology, these unsightly skin lesions can be addressed in a safe and effective manner. The IPL system targets pigment in the skin, causing the melanin to superficially burn and rise to the surface.

A daily mineral based sunscreen is highly recommended post-treatment.

Do your pedicure chairs have the whirlpool jets and if so, how are they sanitized?

The majority of our pedicure stations do have the whirlpool jets, however, they are pipeless, which means there is no stagnant water sitting in the lines from client to client. Our units create the whirlpool action through two fans which move the water about.

To sanitize our basins after each client, basins are drained and rinsed, then scrubbed down with a scrub brush and anti-bacterial soap. They are rinsed a second time, then sprayed with a disinfectant and left to sit for 10 minutes. This destroys all forms of microbes and TB. They are then rinsed again thoroughly in preparation for the next client.
